Mission Hospice & Home Care

  • 12 people are interested
Mission Hospice needs you!

We’re looking for organized, caring volunteers to support families who have recently lost a loved one. Our bereavement volunteers help write note cards, make phone calls, organize our annual memorial event, and help keep records on the computer and in our office. Your volunteer time is flexible, based on your availability and our needs. Our office is open from 8am - 5pm.

If you can volunteer a few hours a week to help in our office, you’ll be part of San Mateo County’s first hospice program, helping support people at the end of life - and their loved ones, throughout the end-of-life and grieving process.

Mission Statement

Mission Hospice & Home Care is a nonprofit organization whose professional staff and well-trained volunteers are dedicated to providing the finest quality, compassionate care to those who are terminally ill or facing a life-limiting illness, and to supporting their families through illness and bereavement.


It’s about life! Mission Hospice & Home Care helps patients live life to the fullest, offering medical, spiritual, emotional, and practical support to patients and familes throughout the end-of-life process.

We are San Mateo County's first hospice program, founded by volunteers in 1979. Since then, our staff and volunteers have cared for more than 10,000 patients and families throughout the San Mateo County area.

We are known for our personal, individualized palliative care - whether in patients’ homes, assisted living, board and care, or skilled nursing facilities. We see every day that our compassionate care gives patients and their loved ones the opportunity to cherish their time together.

This work would not be possible without volunteers, who are the heart and soul of our care. Our direct care volunteers offer important emotional and social support to our patients and their families, providing companionship, logistical assistance, and more. Our indirect care volunteers offer their time and talents in the office, assisting with mailings, special events and administrative tasks. The Mission Hospice Auxiliary is dedicated to raising funds and promoting awareness of the services provided by Mission Hospice & Home Care.
